Re: 2016 Batman / DC cosplay

The photoshoot is at a terrible time for my group so we won't be there, but I look forward to seeing pictures of Batgirl :)

Re: Cosplay Balloon Question

Yes because all the other litter produced at the convention doesn't pose a threat to wildlife....

I don't see a problem with this as long as they aren't being released into the air.

Re: Sleeping in the convention center?

I've seen people fall asleep out in the open before for short periods of time but you can't count on that being your only form of sleep. It is considered loitering in the RenCen and Cobo. There are a lot of people in the unofficial Youmacon facebook group that are looking for extra roommates to lowe...

Re: Cosplay Balloon Question

I've seen people carrying balloons but never anyone wearing them (except for a friend who dressed as a bunch of grapes one year for a Halloween party). I don't think it breaks any rules but I'd be careful with the elevators and the people mover popping your balloons so bring lots of extras.

Re: Room Reservation Lost

This happened to a friend of mine who's confirmation information wasn't matching up with the information he had given the person over the phone. You will need to call to clear up this error. Another friend of mine was redirected from the Detroit Marriott to the Marriott headquarters customer service...

Re: People Mover Pass Question

People mover passes are $6 each and they're good for the duration of the convention. In the past there was a booth you could purchase them at after you pick up your badge.

Re: YOUMA WEDDING?

Lots of people have gotten engaged and I'm pretty sure there's been at least one wedding at the convention. You'd probably have to discuss this with con ops if you want to have is on stage during the Masquerade.

Re: Cost of food in the food court?

I recommend not eating at Cobo. As previously said there's usually not a long wait but the price is a little high. After the renovations I was expecting something awesome and I was disappointed in the quality of the food for the price. RenCen food court is decent priced, but yes just slightly higher...

Re: Hotel Tax?

That is correct. Total tax is 15%. The first year I reserved a room at the convention center I was surprised but now I just factor the cost in like everything else.

Re: are marvel cosplayes banned from youmacon?

Youmacon is all inclusive in terms of the types of cosplay you can wear. Marvel is definitely accepted (I'm even beginning to work on one myself and I've been going to Youma since '09). The only caviat is that you can't enter the cosplay contest unless you are wearing a cosplay of Japanese origin.

Re: Calling all Darker Than Black Cosplayers!!

I haven't worn my DTB cosplay in years but a friend of mine just mentioned that she was interested in making a Yin for Youmacon. If she decides to do it I'll direct her your way.

Re: sailor chibi moon?

Firstly, I wouldn't consider it a "formal outfit". Secondly, if it were to be considered a formal outfit I think the skirt would probably be too short.
What might be interesting is to make a detachable skirt so you can wear a longer evening gown version for the ball.

Re: Cosplay Plans 2015

The charity is always on Friday evening.

I'm considering putting together a Captain Marvel cosplay but I'm super broke right now so I can't even think of making anything new and awesome.
